Sinhala is a country of legends, but it is also the home of those mystical gems called star sapphires. And if you know where to look, you can find them in cerulean and midnight blue. Hold one up to the light, twirl it this way and that and you will see a curious silky sheen. But if you place it in the hands of a master jeweller, he will transform it into a perfect six-sided star.

I will tell you a story of a holy man who found a simple rough-hewn stone, which in some places are as thick as hailstones after a summer storm. He deduced from sheer perspicacity, that if you polish a dull brown stone, a metamorphosis will ensue. But if you release it from its earthly prison, it will shine with more than enough light to create a new and lasting future.

And so it was on an overcast afternoon, that Govinda, a simple uncut stone, made his way down a winding forest path to Chohan’s campsite. His little heart was beating faster than it has ever done before. The quickening he felt at the temple is still pulsing away, but he has no idea what it means. He’s a little apprehensive and just a little excited. Nothing like this has ever happened to him before.

The Snake Charmer’s Tale is set in 19th century Ceylon.

and 21st century Melbourne.
